Farming Equipment and Methods

Description: Photograph of a Krussow Double spiral 2-unit seed separator which operates by gravity and can be utilized in separating balboa rye seed (oblong) from hairy vetch seed (round) after chaff and foreign matter have been removed by a regular seed cleaner. This spiral separator sends the rye seed through one of the three spouts into a separate container while the first quality vetch seed enters a second container and the cracked and low-quality vetch seed enters a third container. Five openings lead from the hopper into the spiral separator and the seeds are deposited into pans by three spouts at the bottom of the separator. Five separate divisions are made in each spiral to the outside. The second grade and cracked hairy vetch seed can be re-run and collected in one lot and the uncracked and larger seed from the second grade collected in another lot. The machine can be utilized for separating practically any type of farm seed and will handle a large volume of seed in a short period of time. Regular Job Number 182.
